Insemination with foreign sperms

If the partner does not have any sperms, which for example can be congenital or is a result of disease, surgery or radiotherapy, the intrauterine insemination can be carried out using donor sperms (so-called heterologous insemination). Further information about this treatment you will find in the description of the insemination.

The heterologous insemination can also be used as an alternative to an ICSI (with sperms obtained from testicles), when the couple does not want to undergo an artificial fertilisation by means of ICSI or when the man does not want to undergo sample-taking from the testicles.

During this procedure, the success depends mainly on the woman’s age. After 12 cycles (in the course of a year) the success rate is 74% in women under 31. In the age group 31-35, 62% get pregnant during this period, it decreases in women who are older then 35 to 54% in 12 cycles. The chance per cycle for those age groups is 11%, 9% and 6,5% respectively. An insemination treatment of women who are older then 40 does not seem to be very reasonable.

We will be glad to consult you on the therapy with donor sperms.

Dr. med Robert Emig, the head of the Fertility Centre of Mainz, is a member of the working group for donor insemination registered society. On the web-pages of this society, you will find further important information to this topic.
